Timothy Alan "Tim" Huelskamp (b. November 11, 1968, in Fowler, Kansas) is a Republican member of the U.S. House of Representatives representing Kansas' 1st congressional district. Huelskamp was first elected to the House in 2010.

He won re-election in an unopposed race on November 6, 2012.[1]

In March 2012, Huelskamp was one of two Republicans who voted against Paul Ryan's budget plan in the House Budget Committee. Huelskamp and Justin Amash both said they felt the plan did not cut the budget fast enough. In December 2012 it was revealed that both representatives would not serve on the House Budget Committee in the 113th Congress. Heulskamp also lost his seat on the Agriculture Committee.[2][3][4]

He previously was a member of the Kansas State Senate from 1997 to 2011.[5]

Based on analysis of multiple outside rankings, Huelskamp is an average Republican member of Congress, meaning he will vote with the Republican Party on the majority of bills.

Biography

Huelskamp was born on November 11, 1968, in Fowler, Kansas, and raised on his family's farm there. He earned his B.A. from the College of Santa Fe in 1991 and his Ph.D. from American University in 1995. Prior to his political career, Huelskamp had worked as a farmer, teacher, and legislative analyst.[5]

Issues

Conservative Fight Club

According to the conservative website RedState, Huelskamp is 1 of 16 U.S. House members in the "Conservative Fight Club", a designation meant to describe the gold standard of conservatives, as outlined by RedState. They are the 16 Republicans who voted against the continuing appropriations resolution to avoid the impending government shutdown in March. This type of resolution is used to fund government agencies when a formal federal budget has not been approved.[8]

Controversy

Committee controversy

In March 2012, Huelskamp was one of two Republicans who voted against Paul Ryan's budget plan in the House Budget Committee. Huelskamp and Justin Amash both said they felt the plan did not cut the budget fast enough. In December 2012 it was revealed that both representatives would not serve on the House Budget Committee in the 113th Congress. Heulskamp also lost his seat on the Agriculture Committee.[9][10][11] Republican Reps. Walter B. Jones (NC) and David Schweikert (AZ) complete the quartet of lawmakers to lose prominent committee seats (both were let go from the Financial Services Committee) during the Republican Steering Commission's December purge of so-called "obstinate" team members.[12] The decision to terminate the four Rep.'s committee memberships, spearheaded by House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH), resonated powerfully with the increasingly divergent party ranks and the political media. Both a virtual anomaly, historically, and as a not-altogether-unexpected reaction to the tea party's storming of the GOP institution in 2010, the purge threw into harsh relief a context of internal conflict between affirming and ebbing institutional identity. Huelskamp called it a “typical Backroom deal,” of the sort the tea party targeted upon invasion as a symbol of the detachment of the GOP congressional establishment from the needs and problems of their constituencies. Many party insiders dispute the claims presented by Huelskamp and his spurned cohort that ideological differences played any role in their dismissal from the committees. Instead, the decision was the result of bad behavior on the part of three of the four, according to Rep. Lynn Westmoreland (GA), whose candid response to the event provided a headline-worthy insult byte that was quickly refined by a spokeswoman into what the mainstream press could call "the obstinate factor."[13] Huelskamp, for example, was not punished for voting against his colleagues on the budget, but for undermining his fellow team members through various social media postings, he says. Matt Kibbe, president of a Tea party group called Freedomworks, represents the position of those skeptical of Boehner and the party establishment's motivations: “This is a clear attempt on the part of Republican leadership to punish those in Washington who vote the way they promised their constituents they would — on principle — instead of mindlessly rubber-stamping trillion dollar deficits and the bankrupting of America.” [14]

Legislative actions

113th Congress

CongressLogo.png

The 113th Congress has had 55 out of 5,401 introduced bills enacted into law (1 percent) as of November 30, 2013. Comparatively, the 112th Congress had 1.14 percent of introduced bills enacted into law in the first session.[15] For more information pertaining to Huelskamp's voting record in the 113th Congress, please see the below sections.[16]

National security

DHS Appropriations

Voted "Yes" Huelskamp voted in favor of HR 2217 - the Department of Homeland Security Appropriations Act of 2014. The bill passed the House on June 6, 2013, with a vote of 245 - 182 and was largely along party lines.[17]

Keystone Pipeline Amendment

Voted "No" Huelskamp voted against House Amendment 69, which would have amended HR 3 to "require that the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, in consultation with the Department of Homeland Security, conduct a study of the vulnerabilities of the Keystone XL pipeline to a terrorist attack and certify that necessary protections have been put in place." The amendment failed on May 22, 2013, with a vote of 176 - 239 and was largely along party lines.[17]

CISPA (2013)

Voted "No" Huelskamp voted against HR 624 - the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act. The bill passed the House on April 18, 2013, with a vote of 288 - 127. The bill would allow federal intelligence agencies to share cybersecurity intelligence and information with private entities and utilities.[18] The bill was largely supported by Republicans but divided the Democratic Party.[17]

National Defense Authorization Act

Voted "Yes" Huelskamp voted in support of HR 1960 - the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2014. The bill passed the House on June 14, 2013, with a vote of 315 - 108. Both parties were somewhat divided on the vote.[17]

Economy

Eliminate Medicaid expansion in 2014 continuing resolution

Huelskamp announced a plan on November 20, 2013, to include a provision to eliminate the expansion of Medicaid in a continuing resolution in January 2014. The funding for the expansion was originally included in the Affordable Care Act.[19]

The funds then would be reallocated to cover the $20 billion in cuts to defense spending that are set to go into effect in January 2014 as part of the sequester, according to Huelskamp. The Medicaid expansion costs about $21 billion for the rest of the fiscal year, said Huelskamp, who supports keeping the sequester cuts in place.[19]

“We would like to take something out of Obamacare, and we looked at the Medicaid numbers and thought, ‘Geez, we can take some of that and put it to some of the sequester cuts,’” he said. “It helps us achieve two goals at once — one to pull something out of Obamacare… Two, it pushes back at some Republicans worried about the sequester.”[19]

Government shutdown
See also: United States budget debate, 2013

Voted "Yes" On September 30, 2013, the House passed a final stopgap spending bill before the shutdown went into effect. The bill included a one-year delay of the Affordable Care Act's individual mandate and would have also stripped the bill of federal subsidies for congressional members and staff. It passed through the House with a vote of 228-201.[20] At 1 a.m. on October 1, 2013, one hour after the shutdown officially began, the House voted to move forward with going to a conference. In short order, Sen. Harry Reid rejected the call to conference.[21] Huelskamp voted to approve the stopgap spending bill that would have delayed the individual mandate.[22]

Voted "No" The shutdown finally ended on October 16, 2013, when the House took a vote on HR 2775 after it was approved by the Senate. The bill to reopen the government lifted the $16.7 trillion debt limit and funds the government through January 15, 2014. Federal employees also received retroactive pay for the shutdown period. The only concession made by Senate Democrats was to require income verification for Obamacare subsidies.[23] The House passed the legislation shortly after the Senate, by a vote of 285-144, with all 144 votes against the legislation coming from Republican members. Huelskamp voted against HR 2775.[24]

Paul Ryan Budget Proposal

Yea3.png In March 2013, the Republican controlled House passed the budget proposal set out by Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan (R) for the third straight year.[25] Huelskamp was one of four Republican Representatives who voted in favor of Ryan's budget proposal after previously being in opposition.[25]

The proposal was killed after being voted down in the U.S. Senate with a 40-59 vote.[26]

The proposal would have cut about $5 trillion over the next decade and aimed to balance the budget by the end of the 10-year period.[25] The 2013 bill had opposition from 10 Republicans — the same number that voted against it in 2012. In 2011, only four Republicans cast a vote in opposition.[25] Democrats have unanimously voted against the bill every year.

2013 Farm Bill

Nay3.png In July 2013 the Republican controlled House narrowly passed a scaled-back version of the farm bill after stripping out the popular food-stamp program.[27][28] The bill passed on a 216-208 vote, with no Democrats voting in favor.[29] All but 12 Republicans supported the measure.[30] The group consisted mostly of conservative lawmakers more concerned about spending than farm subsidies.[30][31] Huelskamp was one of the 12 who voted against the measure.[30]

The farm bill historically has included both billions in farm subsidies and billions in food stamps. Including both of the two massive programs has in the past helped win support from rural-state lawmakers and those representing big cities.[29] After the bill failed in the House in June 2013 amid opposition from rank-and-file Republicans, House leaders removed the food stamp portion in a bid to attract conservative support.[29]

Immigration

Controversial immigration statements

On July 10, 2013, Huelskamp received attention for a tweet about immigration reform: "Most House Rs agree w/most Senate Rs and Americans. Trusting Obama w/border security is like trusting Bill Clinton w/your daughter #tcot." Two weeks prior to the tweet, he publicly stated, "The idea of letting this administration define border security is like letting Bill Clinton define sexual relations."[32]

Morton Memos Prohibition

Voted "Yes" Huelskamp voted in favor of House Amendment 136 - Prohibits the Enforcement of the Immigration Executive Order. The amendment was adopted by the House on June 6, 2013, with a vote of 224 - 201. The purpose of the amendment as stated on the official text is to "prohibit the use of funds to finalize, implement, administer, or enforce the Morton Memos." These memos would have granted administrative amnesty to certain illegal aliens residing in the United States. The vote largely followed party lines.[17]

Healthcare

Health Care Reform Rules

Voted "Yes" Huelskamp voted in favor of House Amendment 450 - Requires Congressional Approval for Any Rules Under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. The amendment was adopted by the House on August 2, 2013, with a vote of 227-185. The amendment requires all changes to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act be approved by Congress before taking effect. The vote was largely along party lines.[17]

Keep the IRS Off Your Health Care Act

Voted "Yes" Huelskamp voted in favor of HR 2009 - Keep the IRS Off Your Health Care Act of 2013. The bill passed through the House on August 2, 2013, with a vote of 232-185. The bill would prevent the IRS and Treasury Secretary from enforcing the powers provided to them in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. The vote largely followed party lines.[17]

Social issues

Amash amendment

Voted "Yes" Huelskamp voted in favor of House Amendment 413 - Prohibits the National Security Agency from Collecting Records Under the Patriot Act. The amendment failed on July 4, 2013, by a vote of 205-217. The amendment would have prohibited the collection of records by the National Security Agency under the Patriot Act. Both parties were split on the vote.[17]

Previous congressional sessions

Fiscal Cliff

Voted "No" Huelskamp voted against the fiscal cliff compromise bill, which made permanent most of the Bush tax cuts originally passed in 2001 and 2003 while also raising tax rates on the highest income levels. He was 1 of 151 Republicans that voted against the bill. The bill was passed in the House by a 257 - 167 vote on January 1, 2013.[33]
